Beats Balance BALI

April 3rd - 11th, 2020

Join Kari and Ryan as they embark on a deep journey into Mother Earth and all it has to offer in the heart of Indonesia.

This magnificent land is vast in nature, ecology and cultural abundance. Our journey will start us in the rice paddies of Ubud, the spiritual center of Bali, in luxurious accommodations. On arrival day, guests will nestle in to our home and get acquainted with each other. We’ll offer a gentle Yin practice in the evening to settle in comfortably and then feast on a magnificent welcome dinner. At the mid point of our experience together, we will shift gears and transfer to the stunning coastline of Canggu, where we can really let our hair down!

Throughout the retreat, guests will be fed indigenously sourced nourishment prepared by a local chef. Each day will begin with fruit, tea, coffee and fresh juice followed by an intentionally curated yoga sequence. Buffet and family style lunch will be served after each morning practice and a sit down dinner after each evening class.

Yoga practices will vary from Vinyasa Power to Yin to the Bikram method and some additional schools of thought. All yoga levels welcome! Depending on the day, afternoon activities will include posture clinics, meditation workshops, or excursions deep into Balinese culture.

Athleta_Bustle.png

*FREE EVENT*
.
Saturday, June 8th. Beverly Hills.
.
Yoga in Nature hosted by Athleta and Bustle.
I will lead you through a yoga asana journey that is embedded in a deep sense of grounding and awareness of breath, as you attune to your higher Self, in nature, connecting with Mother Earth.
.
As we celebrate a day of wellness and adventure in the outdoors, this class will be heavily rooted in the senses; sights, sounds, scents, tastes, touch. Practice is open to all levels with options for modifications. Come with a willingness to explore and expand beyond the possibilities.
.
A short, guided meditation after physical practice will tie together the concept of harmony between humans and nature, a sense of oneness with yourself and also one with Mother Earth. Leave your mat feeling lifted and completely in touch with the elements in preparation for a self-guided hike.

Sign up required. Co-ed, open to the public.

Are you craving a deeper understanding of the classic 26 & 2? Have you been working this practice a long time and feel stuck? Are you ready to explore and further the practice of self-study as you step out of your comfort zone? 

Join me on Saturday, May 18th from 1:30-3:30 for a breakdown on the notorious hot yoga sequence. The class will be built from the ground up with the nucleus of the workshop detailing foot work and attention to alignment. The mechanical breakdowns will focus on the warm-up pranayama breathing, half moon with backbend and forward bend, standing head to knee, standing bow pulling pose, camel and rabbit poses. The room will be heated to roughly 90 degrees.

Come prepared to partner up and demo if you have specific questions! I will provide you with tips and tricks to transform your practice and keep you endlessly searching for more. Stay for the 4pm 26&2 class also led by yours truly and implement everything you learned in the workshop plus get some extra goodies! See you on the mat.

Soulful Sunday Dinner insta-2.jpg

Sunday Dinner is Making a Comeback.

It’s an ideal way to entertain: long, lazy Sunday evening with friends and family gathered together around the table. Think uncomplicated comfort food without the formality of a Saturday night dinner party—it’s more of a community effort and a chance to decompress.

Our host for the evening is THIS Warehouse, in Frogtown, nestled between Silverlake, Mt. Washington, Echo Park and Atwater Village. The amazing creative hub along the LA river seems to currently be the Eastside’s little secret and we can’t wait to play!

Since we’re BBF and movement and music is a must, the evening will begin with a sunset yoga practice led by Kari J. and an all vinyl set by RyToast. After yoga, we’ll have an abbreviated cocktail hour and beverage experience featuring hard kombucha by BrewjaLA and The Tea Drop Trailer environment while you enjoy a live musical performance by Honey LaRochelle and the Baddies. Then we’ll dine together under the stars with a delicious vegan soul feast prepared by Chef Puttie and all vinyl set courtesy of the talented turntablist DJ Mona Lisa.

And like the Sunday dinners of old, it’s an opportunity to bring multiple generations of friends and family together around the table. This event is 21 and over, co-ed and open to the public.
